I have been a full time wheelchair user for many years however have remained as independent as possible in that time. I have always found ways to problem solve most things that come my way but i need some help now please.
I can stand for a few seconds, launch myself over the end of my profiling bed and pull my knickers and trousers up by myself. Sometimes it takes me 6,7,8,9 times to stand and at night i do the reverse to undress. My MS nurse wants me to have a care package to help with this and other things and i feel a bit ambivalent at the moment because i can’t see how it will help as i presume the care assistant won’t be able to lift me up. I have a hoist but this still doesn’t get round the dressing issue, or does it? I have also been referred to an OT and Physio to see what ideas they can come up with.
Are there are people out there who have got it cracked?! All suggestions gratefully received.
